“One of the most superb sounding and powerful single-ended triode amplifier”.
The new driver stage for the Vulcan Evo amplifier has been completely new re-designed and is operating now by our own new AA20B driver tube as well to provide for the shortest signal path and the most direct signal flow. This mono power amplifier offers terrific breathtaking realism, utmost neutrality, explosive dynamics, astounding resolution and truly realistic bass performance from our acclaimed single-ended triode circuit.
The result of a tour de force in the pursuit of sonic realism combined with our leading design expertise in single-ended triodes and advanced technological solutions has quickly earned the reputation of a milestone amongst high-end tube amplifier designs.

The choice of signal and power tubes have a significant influence on the sound and hence on the inspiration and joy of listening. This is not only the decision between good and bad tubes but finally the interaction of the different types of tubes and their combination that are used in the various Ayon amplifiers. Today only few manufacturers still produce tubes for pure audio amplification; one of them is Ayon Audio with its outstanding single-ended triode power tubes (AA32B-S, AA52B-S, AA62B and AA82B) based on the WE 300B.
We believe that the simplest circuits work best together with the shortest signal path. That is why our SE-Triode amplifiers to date have used single-ended pure class A circuitry. The shorter the signal path is, the less possibility of sonic degradation from various sources, including the wire itself. Even on the circuit boards, the copper traces are kept to a very minimum length. The completely redesigned circuit board provides a more straightforward and direct approach to the signal paths.
